Ascent Trip Report

It was very hot in the area, so we minimized effort in the sun. We took the gondola. From its upper terminus we hiked the upper "practice loop" for bikes and took the maintained trail to the top of the cirque. Fro here we followed use trails northwest to the summit road, and followed it to near the top where there is a bit of off-trail scrambling. We could have taken the summit trail that leaves the road partway up from the final saddle, and did on the way down.
